Gender and Women's History in Cultural Representations
Introduction to gender and women's history from pre-history to the 19th century from a humanities perspective. We will develop a critical analysis by studying cultural representations of women and men within the social and historical context of race, class, gender, sexuality. Our analysis will be shaped by an intersectional approach, which means that gender will always be examined in interaction with race, class, sexuality and dis/ability to reveal how identities and systems of power are shaped by multiple forces. We will study a range of cultural representations ranging from literary and visual arts, to mass media, to material, to political to explore how gendered representations produce social, political and personal implications.
